"You're anemic" generic!

Well, not major medical problems here...PRAISE GOD! But, the doctor DID say that I'm "slightly anemic". Which would be about the 5 millionth time I've heard that in my life. I've gone up and down quite a bit in my life.

So, its lots of red meat and iron supplements for this chick. Which is ok with me...I LOVE ME SOME STEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!

But, in all honesty...complete honesty...I was sort of hoping that he would find that I have issues with my thyroid so that he could prescribe that miracle drug we've all heard about before. The one that thyroid patients take and they loose A TON OF WEIGHT!!!!!! Darn! Gonna have to keep fighting this battle of the buldge.

Back to the gym I suppose.

I need to draw a little "darth helmet" on him. We'll see if he's wearing one for the next installment.

Hey Everyone,
Just giving you an update…

I went to see the doctor that’s helping me out on this “weight loss / work out” thing I’m doing. I still haven’t lost any weight (well…ok…3 pounds) and he says that I should have seen a significant amount come off by now. He’s just as discouraged and confused as I am. (Yeah, I’m not crazy!)

So, “Hi Ho, Hi Ho…its off to the lab I go”. I’m getting some blood work done on Monday. He thinks that there has to be SOME medical reason why this weight isn’t falling off of me. He’s thinking my thyroid may be way off center. I mean…I’m eating around 1200 calories a day (sugar free I might add) and working out / breaking a sweat every single day. THAT’S A HUGE ADJUSTMENT!!!!!!!!!

Ok…so…this is scary and exciting all at the same time. Maybe my thyroid IS out of whack, and he’ll put me on medicine to fix it…and I’ll FINALLY lose some weight. Or, maybe there is something that is really wrong with me.

Maybe this is all a test of my faith…maybe God is allowing (like as to Job) satan to test and attack me. Maybe I’m not loosing weight because satan WANTS me to be discouraged and loose my hope and faith. WELL…YOU’RE A BIG JERK FACE satan, AND I’M NOT GONNA LET YOU WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( I WONT EVEN CAPITALIZE YOUR NAME)

Please continue to pray…

Little Green Apple...

So, as many of you have read, I'm working out like a mad woman these days. Everyone has been so encouraging! Thank you.

...and you may also recall that I titled this little journey of mine the "4/13 Challenge 2007".

...and you may also recall that Justin and I are going on a mission trip soon. So, we are pinching pennies right and left. I desperatly need a hair cut and new hair dryer (both which will hopefully be fulfilled this weekend after our garage sale).

Well, a couple of weekends ago, Justin worked his tushy off to help out a friend run sound, lights and all that stuff at a big concert that came into town. Well, when he got paid, he used the money towards some temporary needs and told me that he "gave about 80 of it to Stu for helping him out at Church".

Justin always told me that the only time he would ever lie to me is if he had a big surprise for me up his sleeve.


Justin used the money, that he supposedly "gave to Stu", to buy me a little green Ipod Shuffle to use while I work out. And he had "4/13 to strengthen me" engraved on the back!!!!!!!!! And green is my favorite color (and the color of my eyes). make matters even WAS IN ON THE CON! Sly doggies!

Boy, I never realized just how much some music can really help you out and keep you motivated when working out. BUT IT SO SO SO DOES!!!! Its really helped me stay focused and meet little goals. (And by the way "Chaos" by MuteMath is perfect for 3.9 on the tred mill) she little green apple:

Isn't she cute???????????????????????????????????
